The Schools Cultural Mediation Project is a North West Inner City project that works with 10 schools in the Dublin 7 School Completion Cluster. The project aims to facilitate and support the integration of migrant parents in their children’s school life. The project has already established a translation and interpretation service for the schools and is now investigating the models of cultural mediation that are relevant to the Irish context.
This conference will present guest speakers from three projects that have been developing and implementing different models of cultural mediation in schools for the past 10 years.
